Transition by the Numbers
Category : Uncategorized
I’ve taught every grade from first to sixth, in 7 schools, 4 districts, 2 states and 1 U.S. territory.
I have made the transition to a new grade 8 times in 19 years.
I was provided specific training and support for only 1 of those moves.
Because of that 1 year of professional guidance, 14 years ago, I am now writing this blog.
It taught me the importance of a mentor, all-staff collegiality, and unity among a grade-level team.
How have you been supported in your transitions?
Share your responses.
Read one another’s posts.
Look for ways to help new members of your grade-level team.
Provide support. Promote excellence. Prepare teachers for success.
